Weddings and AnniversariesWedding Couple


With the natural beauty of our island and parish many couples from around the world come to Key West to start their married life.

How can one ever express the happiness of a marriage joined by the Church, strengthened by an offering, sealed by a blessing, announced by angels, and ratified by the Father? ... How wonderful the bond between two believers, now one in hope, one in desire, one in discipline, one in the same service! They are both children of one Father and servants of the same Master, undivided in spirit and flesh, truly two in one flesh. Where the flesh is one, one also is the spirit. [The Catechism of the Catholic Church #1642]

The Parish community of Saint Mary Star of the Sea congratulates you on your forthcoming nuptials and desires to assist you in preparing for the Sacrament of Marriage. If you are planning to be married at Saint Mary Star of the Sea, we ask you to adhere to the marriage guidelines. The marriage guidelines can be downloaded for your convenience via the following links:
